, but the brookings tax policy center took a look at this issue, and here is what they found. under mitt romney 95% of americans making under $200,000 would have a tax increase averaging $2,000 while the wealthiest americans would see tax cuts of up to $86,000 per year. and his claim that he can give the wealthy those tax breaks and still close the deficit, that claim is mathematically impossible according to the tax policy center. romney's fuzzy math has put his surrogates in a bit of a tough spot. here is paul ryan trying to explain the impossible on fox us in yesterday. >> how much does that cost? >> it's revenue neutral. >> it's not revenue neutral unless you take away deductions. and we'll get to that. the first half lowering the tax rates does that cost $5 trillion -- >> no. >> you haven't given me the math. >> oh, it would take me too long to go through the math. >> come on i don't have the time to tell you how the math works. then he follows that awkward statement with another statement today. >> i like chris. i didn't want to get into all of any math of this because
can do. >> true to form romney's policies remain veiled in the same cloud of mystery. his running mate paul ryan refused to say how much their tax cut would cost alleging it would take too long to get into all the math. congressman ryan defended that dodge yesterday. >> i didn't want to get into all the math of this because everybody would start changing the channel. >> and an hour ago, after offering no new specifics on his ticket's tax plan ryan said this -- >> problem is it took me about five minutes to go into all of this with you and you're in a 30-second tv show you can't do it as much. >> on behalf of the television industry, we salute you paul ryan for being so consider ate of the viewers at home. americans still have close to no idea as to what the romney/ryan plan is actually all about. will an 11-minute period of open discussion tomorrow night prove sufficient for governor romney to, quote, get into all the math? perhaps. but with so many of his own policies and open conflict with one another it seems like the most pressing equation for team romney to solve is whether mitt p
with a president romney and foreign policy and next four years with a president obama foreign colorado. what do you foresee as the difference and where are they similar? >> oh, i think the difference will be significant. normally the republican and the democratic party have really within wibeen within the 40 yaro use a seasonal figure of speech. in the case of this president, we're not. he's way, way over in terms of the policy. governor romney without doubt understands that our country is exceptional. he recognizes the role we've played in the world. he believes the world is a better place if we're a participant in that world, and recognizes that it is not for us to go around the world apologizing and ringing our hands. what's called the arab spring is something happening in the islamic world. it's not arab only, because it's happening in a good many other countries as you know well. it's not spring, but it's summer and fall. it's going to be winter. it is a significant shift on the part of a lot of people in a lot of countries, who are encouraged and see the rise of islamist nonsecular forces in
in north carolina. he's criticizing mitt romney for opposing policies that biden says would cut taxes for millionaires and race -- and raise them for for middle-class families. >> how they can justify this? raising taxes for the middle class that's been buried. how can they justify raising those taxes. >> ♪ >> the republican campaign has repeatedly said claims about romney's tax plan are falls. >> we have offered very specific progrowth solutions to get our economy in gear. we can have a dynamic progrowth economy that fosters independence and opportunity verses a stagnant economy that fosters dependency. >> paul ryan is stomping in iowa today before flying to virginia tonight. the wisconsin congressman is set to debate vice president joe biden next thursday in kentucky. >>> president obama has announced plans to visit kern county the monument of cesar chavez will be in keen where he lived. the president says the national monument would preserve chavez's legacy of giving a voice to workers. this trip will include another fund-raiser. >>> a father and son credit a working smoke alarm
over more embassies. you have this whole thing clearly the obama policy so does romney seized opportunity? no. he a one off attack. a correct attack i would say on the statement issued by the cairo embassy which was a grabbling apology. he rans away with it. what he should have done is to give a speech to make the argument that the grabbling argument from the cairo embassy was simply one example of the way that obama and the administration have treated the middle east as a way to say we're really nice to you if we try to sweet talk them out of their weapons, if we refuse to support the revolution against the campaign, lead from behind in the area we are going to be liked and everything will be nice. so the problem i have here is obama very vulnerable. remember, this is the one election where he is ahead on the issue of foreign affairs: democrats are usually way behind. why? because usama bin laden is dead. so a week before the eruption of this anti-americanism. the democrats spend a week in charlotte touting the bin laden raid. and a way of saying, you know, we have now fixed
. the president is otherwise leading absent those yellow states with 237 electoral votes to mitt romney's 191. in ohio a public policy polling survey shows that president obama is leading by 4 percentage points, plus yesterday a columbus dispatch poll had the president up nine points. so let's give those 18 electoral votes to president obama, brings him to 255 and romney 191. in florida a poll shows president obama leading by 1 percentage point. that's until the margin of error, so we'll keep those as a toss up at yellow. out in iowa -- again these are all polls out today -- in iowa there was a we ask america poll showing president obama 44%. we'll give the president those electoral votes. things are looking better, though, for mitt romney in north carolina. in north carolina the arg poll shows romney leading 50-46%. and a ppp poll out today that shows it all even. so we'll keep that state in the toss-up column. there are 36 days until the election. this election actually despite everything you are hearing it is still up in the air. so don't count your chickens folk. back
the prospect of conflict and instability. he does not understand american policy that lax result the unprovoked aggression and encourage isorder. has romney been strong enough, calling that was going on? and en i want you to pick up. >> i don't think that he has. he really needs to make broad case against the president and for himself. that includes foreign policy. begin talk to the campaign. we have to focus on the economy. it is the number one topic, but voters care about a lot of things. i wish he would make the broader case for romney foreign-policy and the broader chrism tough criticism of an obama foreign-policy. >> i think what you have seen is he tends to speak, especially about foreign policy, and really be vague sending generalities. we have some very specific things happening in libya. u.s. ambassador and three other americans were murdered. the investigation that the obama administration is placing some much importance on has not really started. there are a lot of specific things that run the kentuck about three failures on the part of the administration. so far he simply has not do
romney offers a set of policy proposals which will grow the economy, of the port of poverty, all of the middle-class and provide jobs for the american people. >> republican candidate mitt romney want lower taxes and less government intervention. that's something this family agrees with, particularly when it comes to health care reform very >> health care is not our right in the sense we don't authorize the government to take for other people to provide the american people with health care. healthcare is a privilege. >> but this obama supporters sees a different america. he says the government is not giving people the help they need. >> health care is not a privilege. health-care is right. playing golf is a privilege. you don't have to play golf. >> he can afford to buy private insurance for themselves and his family, but as a presbyterian minister, he often crop -- often comes across people his lights have been turned upside down by the economic crisis. that's why a lot with most of the members of this parish council, he was to see president obama reelected. he wants to see more
at the university of denver focuses on domestic policy. romney supporters want the gop nominee to show undecided voters how he'll jump-start the slow economy. colorado is a battleground state that went for president obama back in 2008. a new washington post poll gives the president a comfortable 11-point lead in the swing states. the poll also shows 56% of voters think the fort president is going to win this first debate. sunday in las vegas, he tried to dial back those expectations. >> governor romney, he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> the president is staying in nevada until wednesday. mr. romney is already in colorado. now, as governor romney and the president are a little sick of all the homework they have to do to get ready, we can tell them who's to blame. chances are it's fred con's fault. gary nurenberg met con in bethesda tonight and got him to at least take some responsibility. gary? >> when kahn was a student at the university of maryland in 1956 this new american citizen thought it will be a good idea to have the presidential candidates appear there together to answer questions
policies that romney now is at very kateing and that obama has kept in place by keeping those budget-busting bush tax cuts as part of our system these four years. neither one of them will talk about our incarceration rate in this country. it's a huge problem. we have 2--almost 2.4 million people behind bars and there are racist implication there is with the war on drugs, which is a completely failed policy. neither of these parties will talk about it, but it impacts millions of people. we have a half million people now in prison and jail because of drug offenses. when the war on drugs was first commenced, there were fewer than 40,000 now there are over 500,000 people behind bars. three out of four people, although blacks and whites do drugs at the same rate. the studies show that. three out of four people imprisoned on drug offenses are black people. 50%-- >> cenk: we're out of time, but i got to ask you one more question. president obama is he a liberal a centrist or in your opinion is he right wing. >> i think he's way right of center. this man has violated every promise he made. e
a lot about his plans to reverse that trend. policies of obama that have not worked. and why romney's plans will work. i think that's the heart and soul of what this election is about. >> you know, he has been talking about this on the stump speech. and i mean, tell me why for mitt romney the economy is not resonating with him more. when you look at the polls and our polling in particular, the president and mitt romney are basically neck and neck on the issue of the economy. a little bit of an edge for your candidate on the issue of unemployment. but why, with all of those statistics that you just rattled off, why isn't your guy, the business guy, doing better on that? >> it is somewhat perplexing given how poorly the president has managed the economy. there's been a lot of promises, and platitudes. but not a lot of results. that's mitt romney's shtick. he's about getting results, as governor of massachusetts and turning around the olympics. i think there's been a couple things. one the democrats got a little bump out of the convention. two, i think the president has done a good job
a bully. >> and with regard to tomorrow, how does mitt romney, given the policy that is he himself has espoused and articulated, how does he warm up women towards him? how does he do that? >> i think the difficulty for mitt romney is the same one he's had all along because he always has at his right flank that part of the party that wants to be aggressive and that wants to be a bully and that sees that as a positive image, right? he always has to have them in his -- on his side. so i think he's afraid of walking too far away from them. he doesn't want to do the etch-a-sketch. it's going to be difficult. you are debating a sit president. you have to come across respectful -- >> a sitting president who, by the way, whose first legislative achievement was to equalize pay for women. >> which the romney campaign at first didn't know how to respond to questions of whether mitt romney would have supported that or not, and i think that clip that you played of ann romney saying i love women is so illustrative because the romney campaign wants to just assert, we're for women without having any s
policy speech this week. romney is taking his message to the air waves. >> i think they want to do their best to keep the people of america from understanding exactly what happened. we expect candor, we expect transparency, particularly to terrorism. >> it's hard to understand how mitt romney thinks this strategy is going to work. romney was hammered for his initial response to the attack in the middle east. he blamed the president for sympathizing with protesters. romney is a 14-point disadvantage for terrorist issues. romney can't pick a strategy and stick with it. the campaign, they used to be all about jobs. the romney slogan was obama isn't working. but then all of a sudden, the campaign was about obama care and the slogan was "repeal and replace." then that didn't work so romney moved on to we did build that. while republicans spent a night at their own convention talking about the new strategy, but that didn't work either. so recently they went with "are you better than off than you were four years ago?" but now they are abandoning it for national security message. they are
. it will focus on domestic policy, things like healthcare and the economy. that's where mitt romney sees his opening. >> these debates are an opportunity for each of to us describe the path way forward. >> reporter: the public is basically split on who they think can do a better job, president obama with a one-point edge at the moment. a praise which hasn't had huge swings, everything can change in one night but both sides had tried to lower expectations. >> governor romney is a good debater. i'm just okay. >> about 6,000 to 8,000 people can fit in this arena behind me. you can expect a packed house. we are expecting tens of millions to watch from their homes, so the pressure is definitely on. >>> speaking of voters, in pennsylvania they're not going to be required to show a photo i.d. at the polls. a judge is temporarily blocking it. a judge said he wasn't convinced that every voter would be able to get a valid i.d. the requirement is supported by republicans who said they're fighting voter fraud. democrats say it's a move to help republican candidates. that ruling is expected to be appeale
answers, sam. >> well, first of all, it is easy and we know it's easy because this is mitt romney's second position on text policy. this was a revision of his earlier position in the primary. he wanted to simplify it, make it more appealing to primary voters and so he said okay let's do a 20% across the board rate reduction and we'll fill in the gaps eliminating some deductions and exemptions. keep in mind that the american public are too bored by this. two weeks ago the senior adviser for the romney campaign said people are ready to know about the policies. that's when he said we're going to fill in the details. obviously they haven't done that. but you're right. it's very simple. you just have to make the math up. but they realize as soon as they name one deduction or one exemption that they're going to be attacked for it and they're going to try to do it until the very day of the election. >> i really crack up when i hear paul ryan use the word baseline, as if it's a very heavy, technical term that if we get into anything involving this word "baseline", everybody is going to get confuse
off. tara mergener has the latest from washington. >> reporter: president beam and mitt romney get a chance to put their policies side by side this week. wednesday's debate will focus on the policy. >> with a -- what i'm most concerned about is having a serious discsion aut what we need to do to keep the country growing. >> reporter: a new poll shows 56% of registered voters think the president will win the matchup. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who will have the best zinger, who will put the mopoints on board. governor romney, he's a good debater. i'm just reporter: the presiden . aying in nevada to prepare weekend and is heading to mpairadotoday. ca watchs say all thre chalrtunity forepuicr the n er to hava me- changing moment. new jers governor chris christieto cbs's bob schieffer romney is pable of that. >> the whole race will be turned upside down come thursday morning. >> reporter: but romney's running mate paul ryan downplayed the debate. >> i don't think one event will make or break the campaign. >> reporter: romney is trailing in the polls in mo
romney and obama. mainly on tax policy. >> reporter: vice president biden said romney would hike middle class taxes. >> how they can justify raising tax on the middle class has been buried the last four years. >> reporter: republicans jumped on that. buried by obama? >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years has been, quote, buried. we agree. that mean we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states. >> reporter: that's the kind of zinger sure to be heard tomorrow night. doug, andrew and chris say they hope to hear a lot of substance, too. at debate number one in their battleground ate. a lot is on the line. doreen talked about the nbc news "wall street journal" poll. 38%. more than a third of voters saying this debate and the three to follow, one vice presidential work the more presidential, will be important or extremely important to their decision about who to vote for. live from denver, i'm steve handelsman, news4. >> thank you. >>> a freelance american journalist who disappeared in syria eight week
than the bellicose language and i haven't been able to do it. have you been able to discern any romney doctrine? >> they see an opening--for example, what this has done is brought foreign policy front and center into the presidential campaign. i think romney is trying to put the president on the defensive. that will give some perhaps glancing blows in the upcoming debate but if he wants to move aggressively to talk about substantive foreign policy, he's moving into an area that the president believes he's stronger and foreign policy is one of those areas where the incumbent has greater advantages and we will a he hear it in the upcoming debates. g.m. is alive and obama that will work to the disadvantage of romney. he wants to talk about the economy, which i think is what he sees as the administration's weakenings. the more time he spends on foreign policy it takes him away from his core message. >> eliot: the issue of iran and the bomb that was in the news during the u.n. general assembly meeting, where are we on that. the president seems to be inching towards a demonstration towards a
advantages going into this debate. 66% say his policies have favored the middle class, while 57% think romney's, instead, would favor the wealthy. but the campaign sees some liabilities, as well. the president can get peevish when challenged. >> you're likable enough, hillary. >> reporter: his debate prep team is also studying presidential debates of the last 20 or so years, focusing on unforced stylistic errors, such as al gore's exasperated sighs. the president is also quite verbose. when i asked him a two-part question in august, his answer was -- >> on afghanistan. >> reporter: longer than 5 1/2 minutes. he's working to make answers crisper and more concise. obama aides say they see as one of romney's key weaknesses, his reluctance to go into detail about his policies. for instance, he has not indicated what tax loopholes he would close to pay for his tax cuts. they hope he will be pressed on this wednesday night. we go now to david muir traveling with the romney campaign. >> reporter: hey, jake. good evening from denver. the debate two days from now in this city. mitt romney will appear
on policy. i hope they get into a good discussion of policy because from my point of view i think romney would get the better of that but i'm not sure. we'll see. >> we looked at past debates. some folks seem to get into trouble when they start debating over the debate rules themselves. i want to play a quick montage of stuff. >> i have to let senator obama respond. and senator edwards will come in as well. go ahead and respond. >> wait -- >> you just spoke for two minutes. >> i did not say anything about ronald reagan. >> you can dispute that but let me finish. hillary, you went on for two minutes. let me finish. >> i'm speaking. i'm speaking. i'm speaking. i'm speaking. you get 30 seconds. this is the way the rules work here, is that i get 60 seconds and then you get 30 seconds to respond, right? anderson? >> you say that you knew -- >> would you please wait? are you just going to keep talking? >> governor, take 30 seconds to respond. then i want to move the conversation on. >> much longer than 30 seconds. >> i hope not. >> that's a long answer. >> so does anyone win in that kind of a

the crucial 50% mark at 52%. mr. romney is close but still in negative territory at 49%. he enjoys an edge on handling the deficit and joblessness, but trails on virtually every other big issue, including medicare, taxes and foreign policy. keeping them honest, when it comes to some of those issues, both candidates have come up short either on specifics or credibility. issues like cutting taxes without ballooning the deficit or burdening the middle class. the romney campaign has been asked again and again for specifics. here's runningmate paul ryan just yesterday on fox news. >> there's been a traditional democrat and republican consensus lowering tax rates by broadening the tax base works. and you can -- >> i have to -- you haven't given me the math. >> well, i don't have -- it would take me too long to go through all of the math. >> chris wallace kept trying but came away empty-handed. he's not the only one. take a look. >> which of the deductions are you going to be willing to eliminate? which of the tax credits are you going to -- when are you going to be able to tell us that? >> we'll
